Descent from Foinavon to A838 road
We were descending moorland to the NW of Foinavon in Sutherland, NW Scotland. The mountain was well behind us - we had thoroughly enjoyed our traverse. The area around GR NC295345 is a maze of peat bogs and also sphagnum moss bogs. I stepped into one of the latter and was immediately swallowed in - right up to the thighs. The consistency was like glue. If I had not been with a companion who pulled me out, I genuinely believe I would never have emerged.
